Hobart Technical College

The Hobart Technical College was designed by S W T Blythe in 1938. Blythe designed many Government buildings throughout Tasmania, with one of his most recognisable being the massive Ogilvie High School. The Hobart Technical College is an impressive Art Deco design in the central CBD. The building sweeps around the street corner, which I think often works very well for the Art Deco period buildings that use many curves in their designs. The building has many interesting features, including a wall above the entrances of square cube glass on both of it's North and East facing entrances, as well as an interesting combination of brick and sandstone being used to create the building.
